The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star discussed the popular burger topping in a video released via her KKW app in September 2018. In the clip, the California native scrolled through a handful of her old tweets with former assistant Stephanie Shepherd. In one musing from February 2010, Kardashian asked Twitter if a cucumber is a pickle. “I still don’t even know, and I don’t care to research,” the sunglasses designer confessed.In Kardashian’s defense, the delineation between pickles and cucumbers can be a tad befuddling, as a pickle is a cucumber that has been pickled in a brine, vinegar, or other solution and left to ferment.

Rob Lowe Waters His Christmas Tree With 7UP The Holiday in the Wild star discussed the unusual way he keeps his Christmas tree alive during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in December 2019.

Chick-fil-A Didn’t Realize National Sandwich Day Fell on a Sunday Even people who know very little about the beloved chain are aware that it is closed on Sunday because of religious reasons. Heck, Kanye West even wrote a song about it. That’s why the internet was baffled in November 2019 when the Atlanta-based brand excitedly sent an email to customers about National Sandwich Day, which was celebrated on a Sunday. The embarrassing mistake caused the company to send a follow-up email explaining the senseless slip-up. “We recently sent an email that included a message about National Sandwich Day, which naturally we were very excited about,” the message read. “We didn’t realize it falls on Sunday when we are closed.

[That] s—t really pisses me the f—k off,” Cardi added. She also noted that syrup and hot sauce don’t warrant a spot in the fridge either.
